Asda sparks cancer drug price war21st May 2010
A supermarket price-war has erupted on cancer drugs after Asda announced it is to sell cancer drugs on a not-for-profit basis, helping patients to pay for treatment that is deemed too expensive for the NHS to provide free.
Sainsbury’s has now said it will match prices set by Asda. The lung cancer drug Iressa will be sold by Asda for £2,167 for a pack of 30 compared to the £2,601 charged at Lloyds Pharmacy, £3,251 at Boots and £3,253 at Superdrug.
